Beans Beans They're Good For Your Heart - Who Knew!
Since high levels of excess hormones affect all of us, girls, boys, men, and women, we all can benefit by making a few changes to our diet. By adding foods that blance hormones, like soybeans, kidney beans, black beans, flax seeds, and other legumes, fruits and nuts to your diet, and reducing the amount of animal hormones in your diet, we can greatly impact the occurrence of early puberty, menopausal discomforts, hormone-dependant cancers, gallbladder and cardiovascular disease and yes, heart disease.
So, maybe, twice a week a nice loaded salad finds its way to the dinner table instead of fried chicken, or perhaps we heap the black-eyed peas and kidney beans on the plate, with only a side of meat. What about eating a salad filled with chickpeas, flax seeds, and kidney beans before dinner – keep those estrogen receptors busy!
Remember, some change is better than no change, and a little more is better than some. So start small, and work up to a healthier diet, and leave the growth hormones off the table.
